over again. erin, you were heavily involved in covering the john edwards trial. what did we learn there? >> well, i think we learned, number one i mean the justice department has had a real mixed record this year and actually the last four years. in john edwards' case he won the battle. he was acquitted on one charge and there was a mistrial on the other, so he walked away but i think he lost the war. so i think we learned more unfortunately, about this particular individual than most of us really wanted to know. and the whole idea of him trying to come back right now, you know, he spent a fortune, maybe his fortune, on this case. he hasn't worked for four years. he's trying to get his law license back to active status. it will be interesting to see what he does next. >> moving forward. >> changed a lot of people's views about politicians, too, and their personal lives. >> it was an astonishing fall from grace. i think when all of a sudden people start peeling back the layers of your life inside a courtroom, it's not the place where you ever want to have that
